Not quite as clean a confirmation as one would like: " It would be like if I asked you to believe that by putting a dollar bill in a special laundry machine and spinning it for half an hour with some special detergent the dollar turns into a $1000 note. You are allowed to watch the machine as it does its work, but it is me who opens it and extracts the bill when it has finished its magic conversion. I doubt you would buy it."

If it sounds too good to be true...

...I don't.

I have five machines ranging from 4 to 12 GB. I also don't keep applications open long enough for "degradation" to play a role; closing an app gives the OS a chance to play memory organizer just as surely as rebooting a machine (sorry *nix fanboys who brag about all of your oh-so-important 'uptime' when rebooting takes, at worst, a few minutes) gives it a fresh pallette.

I don't CARE about memory usage. Just isn't on my radar, anywhere.
